This weekend I took the opportunity to finish a photobook I have been working on full of my wedding photos. I should seriously have had this done months ago but I have a real problem with this. I half make something and then I think that I might want to consider it before I make the full commitment. Just imagine how much I agonized about actually getting married if it has taken me over 6 months to commit to sending the book to print! Photos to come…

I love making my own hand soap it smells luscious, it’s fun and it’s cheap. Simply buy plain Castile liquid soap, put in pump with about 20 drops of your very own blend of essential oil. This one made with patchouli and palmarosa from Perfect Potion. mmmmm…

Last night I held a Chinese feast at my house. For the feast I made two kinds of dumplings. One with mushroom and one with tofu. Both had one important ingredient – Love. I always tell my kids that food should be made with love and honestly it tastes better. I came up with both dumpling recipes on my own so I think it’s a delicious way to start this homemade blog!

Mushroom Dumpling Love Recipe

Combine 3/4 bag of chopped button mushrooms, 1 chopped capsicum and 1 chopped onion in frying pan with oil. Add 3 cloves garlic. Cook on high for 5 minutes. Add splash soy sauce. Cook 2 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 10 minutes. Use a teaspoon to pick up mixture and place in centre of wonton wrapper. Bring corners together to make dumpling. Wrapper sticks better if fingers are wet. Bring pot of water to boil. Put dumplings in water. Once dumplings float on top remove from water and serve! Eat and enjoy.

It is so incredibly easy to get caught up in life’s daily adventures and forget to take time to breathe. To create. To make space. Well this is my new space. My own little creative online space. Enjoy!
